Here we go again

Moving the target. We move our index targets to 1,550 for end-2010 and 1,660 for end-2011. It seems trivial now to suggest the beginnings of a liquidity-driven market; we point instead to a number of areas and stocks that remain good value. In addition, we look to previous liquidity runs to assess how stretched valuations can become, and potential canary-in-the-coal mine events that may be turning points.

Star Publications RM3.48: Hold
Plodding giant Shariah-compliant

Momentum fading. RM43m net profit (+32%YoY/-14%QoQ) took 9M to RM134m (+54%). This was within expectations. 9M growth was off the low 1H09 recession-hit base and high newsprint costs. The latest quarter underlines the anemic prospects. Circulation is falling, demographics shifting and corporate transparency remains weak. We are Holders for the yield but much prefer Media Prima.

JT International RM5.93: Buy
Thriving in adversity

Maintain Buy; forecasts and TP raised. JTI's continued top-line growth and profit margin expansion reassure us that it will continue to thrive in a shrinking market. We have raised our 2010-12 earnings forecasts by 2-7% on better market share assumptions and consequently raise our DCF-based TP by 8% to RM6.50 (from RM6.00).

MBM Resources RM3.02: Buy
Beats street, Perodua provides the beat Shariah-compliant

Target price raised to RM5.00 (+10%). MBM's 3Q results were sequentially softer but 9M10 net profit of RM113m was still ahead of our and consensus full-year forecasts of RM123-124m, driven mainly by stronger Perodua earnings. We lift our 2010-12 EPS by 9-12% as we raise our Perodua vehicle sales by 5%. Our target price is raised to RM5.00, based on 8x PER; and Buy recommendation unchanged.

The FBM KLCI tumbled 14.31 points to 1,513.70 yesterday. Its resistance area at 1,513 and 1,531 will cap market gains, whilst its weaker support areas are located at 1,490 and 1,507.

Trading idea for today is a SHORT TERM BUY call on TASCO.

Boustead: Sells assets to REIT unit, and then leases them back. Boustead Holdings Bhd plans to sell for RM189.2m its Sabah's Sutera estate, Taiping rubber plantation and Trong oil mill to Al-Hadharah Boustead REIT, and then lease back these assets. The disposal and leaseback will allow Boustead to realise the underlying value of the plantation assets while retaining the productive use of the assets. The move will result in a cash inflow for the group and its subsidiaries, which will be used to reduce bank borrowings by the group and potentially save RM9.5mil interest expense per annum for the group.
